I am a CAS gal- well, when it comes to stamping, I am pretty much CAS. So, I am smitten with the new SU Remarkable You Calla Lily and Water Lily images. I did research on Calla Lillies to see the colors and was surprised to see a variety of hues. From this quick research, I did notice that the spadix of the Calla Lily in all of the different colors is yellow. I can remember making my homeschooled kids memorize all the parts of flowers for science class- happy memories:)
However, I love how all colors can be used in the magical world of stamping- purple elephants, green giraffes, and even a pumpkin pie spadix in one of my cally lilies:)
The Stampin’ Up Only Challenges # 127 asked to share our favorite new stamp set.
As always, whatever I am working with ultimately is my favorite stamp-du-jour! Here is my card using the SU Remarkable You stamp set with a Pear Pizzazz card base and ink and accents of Daffodil Delight. With a bold image like this, it is was hard to embellish my card but I think the simple black and white baker’s twine worked well with the retired Daffodil Delight button.
I also used my NEW Archival Basic Black felt ink pad that SU blessed me with at Convention last week- oh my my- it is wonderful- crisp, clean, and REALLY BLACK!! It will be in the new Holiday catalog coming out Sept. 1. Yipee!
A little something on the inside, too…
